Menu & Dialog Fonts

Post by RRJ » Wed Aug 15, 2012 10:33 pm

I just installed on 64 bit Fedora 14.
The menu and dialog fonts are so small as to be almost unreadable, is there any way of changing them?

Ok, I changed the dialogue style from Linux to Wndows 7 and now they are about the same size as Linux menus and dialogs in other applications. Still it would be nice to have Linux style in a normal font size.

Could you please send us a screenshot of the problem with the menu and dialog fonts (either attach it here or sent it to forum(at)softmaker.de referring to that thread)? Thank you!

See attached screen shots.

The LinuxDialogs is as it appeared on installation
The WindowsDialogs is after I selected Windows 7 dialog style and use large icons.

I am running it under Fedora 14 in a VirtualBox.
It occurred to me that the arbitrary screen resolution set by resizing the containing Window may be a factor.
It was running at 1748 x 936 so I tried resizing to 1024 x 768 but it made no difference.

Hope this helps,

Richard

Can you go to Tools/Option and check ON the option "Window Manager dialogs"? Does this change anything?
